  1. Wow... looks pretty spanky. I may buy 3!!! Here is my basket as of now... However, the promo code you supplied is coming back as invalid... Besides the webcam, is there any difference in that monitor and this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16824236028
  2. Sweet... yes it's looking like DVI cable comes even up to 35 feet http://www.cablesforless.com/c-279-dvi-i-cables.aspx
  3. Rock n roll... Yeah I'm sure I'll be getting the DVI version of the Triplehead2go... so if that won't kill the feed quality then I'll just buy some long DVI cables. The only question is which monitors to get - http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showtopic=160708
  4. Cool... thanks mouse. As things stand now, though, the pit I am building will require more cable (about eight feet) than either the device or the monitor cables provide. And I remember some line in one of the articles that the cables are made these lengths because longer ones kill the video signal quality or something. Would this be an issue with the length I need? If not, is there a simple monitor cable extension I could pick up to run from my three monitors (on one side of the pit) to the the device and computer setup (the other side of the pit) ???
  5. Thanks Mechm24... But my card already supports dual displays and has double ports. However, I'm looking to run at least 3 displays. I could do that by dropping another whopping $500 + to go SLI and even then only be able to play the couple or so game titles that natively support just a dual setup (aside from tweaking a few others while dealing with major issues from what I read). To my understanding (which is beginner), the thing about the Triplehead2go is that it is not a resource drain as the only thing it is doing is telling your card that the three monitors are just one monitor with a really high resolution that it splits to the three like so: Hence the ability for even a laptop to use it. This also allows the software that comes with it to make a fairly large list of games (even titles like oblivion, crysis, etc) now able to be on 3 displays http://www.ubisoft.de/gc-2006/sponsor/Matr...pieleliste.html Once again, I'm not an expert, but that's what I'm gathering so far.... missing something?
  6. Hello everyone, I am building an enclosed home cockpit. One of the things I am planning to do is to incorporate a 3 display setup. Since most games do not support multi displays, and the few that do only support dual set-ups, I've been thinking my best option is the TripleHead2Go. Has anyone used the TripleHead2Go? What are your thoughts? Also, in reading what I've been able to about it, I've picked up something no one is elaborating too much on that may be a problem. I've read that one of the drawbacks is the very short cable that is supplied. To use this, I'll need around a 10' stretch of cable. I think the supplied cable is 2'. Is there some kind of extension I could use? Thanks so much.
